Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The SmallBall Nation of Anti-Goatsack is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Billy with a fair hand, and renowned for its soft-spoken computers, state-planned economy, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 27.106 billion Anti-Goatsackians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Education, although Law & Order and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Keely. The average income tax rate is 1.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Anti-Goatsackian economy, worth a remarkable 3,989 trillion Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Book Publishing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Furniture Restoration. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 147,181 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Truth is often impossible to tell from fiction on the evening news, all mothers are allowed six months fully-paid maternity leave, military funding has been stripped back, and bus ads propagandize causes ranging from sexual revolution to religious pogroms. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Anti-Goatsack's national animal is the Beaner, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Anti-Goatsack is ranked 3rd in Smallballia and 140,419th in the world for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring -7 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
